Morganzo 55: Double Nickels on the Grime – Ride fifty-five miles of gravel and dirt in the rolling foothills of the breathtaking Bridger Mountain Range outside of Bozeman, Montana.

The 5th annual running of the “Morganzo 55: Double Nickels on the Grime” will be held Saturday, August 27th 2016 with rubber hitting gravel shortly after 8:00 am.  Participants are to meet at the corner of Dry Creek Road and Theisen Roads just north of Belgrade, MT.

This is a great local or destination event, and for those traveling it can easily be connected with a trip to historic Yellowstone National Park just ninety miles to the South. Started in 2012 by a humble cyclist looking to continue the tradition of the grassroots gravel races of his Midwest roots this all-gravel route in rural SW Montana is sure to please everyone from beginner to diehard.

The Morganzo 55: Double Nickels on the Grime route can be ridden nearly all year ’round with the exception being times of heavy snow or immediately after a rain storm.  During these times some sections become “impassable when wet“.

Annually during mid-August the official Morganzo 55: Double Nickels on the Grime race/ride event is held that has drawn anywhere from six to 25 participants.  The exact day of the year is typically announced a number of months out and can be found here on this website or on other popular gravel grinding websites.
 
The official start point for the Double Nickels on the Grime race is the corner of Dry Creek Road and Theisen Roads just north of Belgrade, MT.
 
Cost for the event is free.  There are no winners nor losers,  just first and last pick from the beer cooler.
Now don’t tell me that’s not a superb location for a gravel race. What’s that? Yep, you’re right, that IS a great location for a gravel race.
